Sami Christianson has a soft demeanor—and a damn dirty sense of humor. In 2009, she graduated from the IDEA program from Capilano University in Vancouver, Canada, with a diploma in graphic design and illustration. Since then, she’s been obsessed with traditional calligraphy and blackletter. To teach herself how to draw beautiful letters, Sami started an Instagram account called @prettybadwords. She hones her lettering skills every day by writing funny irreverent thoughts in gorgeous, ornate lettering and calligraphy. She’s currently working full time as a designer at a design and branding agency while doing a lot of internal work to overcome her crippling fear of peacocks and geese. Sami does not advocate coke use, especially in her bathroom.
